, except look at the price tag of repairing things after stuff -- look at katrina, now sandy. sandy wasn't an especially big hurricane as hurricanes go. it just happened to get deflected ashore in an inopportune place. from a geologic standpoint, katrina was 2005. sandy's 2012. in the sense of deep time, that's like the wink of an eye, it's happening just like that. if these storms happen every five years, then every four years, it's going to be a very expensive and traumatic thing. that's in the developed world where we have the means to feed people on thanksgiving day. in the developing world it leads to horrible trauma. we have huge inefficiencies and there's going to be conflict over transportation and clean water and who gets the rights to live in the most desirable places. this could be a turning point. >> bill nye, the science guy, told me that the world can expect more superstorms like sandy. >>> a deadly fire rips through a clothing factory. 2,000 people were inside a nine-story building in a country where most clothing is exported to the u.s. what do you got? restrained driver
there. katrina. >> people need to know that we have come one step closer to ending the ineffective irrational and inhumane drug wars with the initiatives that passed in washington and colorado on november 6th. this is an opening for the president to instruct the department of justice to reprioritize the marijuana, prosecution of marijuana cases. but also to use this as a way to allow washington, colorado to implement these cases because the war on drugs disproportionately affects latino, african-americans and it's failed. >> colorado is an -- the story in colorado is fascinating. they're setting up the regulatory system. >> eli lake. people should know that the white house and the cia write the policy that was supposed to endure for drone target, china developed their own military drones that they unveiled this week as a military air show. it's not just america and israel anymore. >> inevitable. heather hole bert. >> people should know as we go back to the fiscal cliff/curve discussions, pentagon contractors, have enough money to ride them out for six months unlike military familie
.s. has been slow to invest in its infrastructure. in 2005, hurricane katrina destroyed parts of new orleans. now they have a $13.6 billion flood protection system. in 2007, this bridge in minneapolis collapsed. that bridge was rebuilt, but many of our nation's bridges are still in a sorry state and it takes extraordinary events for us to upgrade our infrastructure. well, i spoke to infrastructure enthusiasts and my cohost, fareed zakaria. when we talk about infrastructure projects, there are many people who feel it's stealing, it's government spending, it's ineffective. how do you convince people there is a way to spend that $2.2 trillion that the engineering society says we need to spend and get a payback. >> there is also a very smart way to do it, which is create a national infrastructure bank. have the federal government feed it with capital but then get a lot of private sector money. have the projects -- and this is the key -- have the projects awarded by a group of technical experts who would evaluate the projects on their merit rather than congressionally. now guess who doesn
with his personal situation with monica lewinsky, george w. bush when it came to hurricane katrina. it's tough. the white house staffers are around and soft and not on their a-game. also, the president is tired and perhaps he's not on his a-game. but after january 1st, 2014, president obama will become a lame duck president and people will already start thinking and acting like 2016 is right around the corner. >> does that mean, robert, that you think that republicans are going to play obstructionists? do you think they will? >> i don't think politically they can afford to do this this time around because president obama won with such big numbers. i think they will work with him on immigration reform and comprehensive tax reform and comprehensive climate change reform. other than that, after 2014, i can't imagine them working with him, unfortunately. >> what about the up preem court justices? if so, what potential challenge could that pose for him? >> he will certainly appoint one justice and likely two. the challenge is going to be from his base. they will want to see very liberal jus
